AS2 Embraced by RosettaNet For Its Users

Drummond Group Inc. also welcomes the recent RosettaNet announcement this summer that it has completed validating its Multiple Messaging Service (MMS) which allows members looking to make the switch from RosettaNet Implementation Framework® (RNIF®) to MMS AS2. AS2 certified products are now being used to exchange RNET PIPs following the guidelines of the RNET MMS AS2 Profile.

“This most recent list of AS2 certified products are the most likely to be used in switching out RNIF to AS2 as they have proven to be interoperable by committing to interoperability testing on a continuous basis,” says Rik Drummond, CEO of Drummond Group Inc. “Interoperability certification is a critical link in the successful and dependable exchange of business to business transactions and continuous testing is a big part of that dependability. This confirms the continued value of AS2 technology and the Drummond AS2 certification process we facilitate with these companies.”
